Topics

Since 2000, we have observed a very strong growth in the sales of the Luxury sector. At the same time, the number of academic articles devoted to Luxury has increased exponentially. Accordingly, the objective of the fifth edition of the biennial Monaco Symposium on Luxury is to advance knowledge on luxury marketing by bringing together international scholars from different disciplines and top-level practitioners working in the field of luxury from all over the world. The formal program comprises both academic sessions with academic research papers and one business-oriented session with presentations open to academics as well as consultants and business managers. In addition to this formal program, a friendly and informal atmosphere of exchange between academics and practitioners characterizes the Symposium. In that spirit, each academic paper will be given a full 30 minutes for presentation in order to facilitate exchanges between participants and allow ample time for questions from and interactions with academics and managers.
